LEAP Sport Evaluation

In December 2007, Kenya - long considered one of the most stable countries in East Africa - descended into political violence following disputed presidential elections. The city of Eldoret was one of the locations where the violence escalated. Mercy Corps decided to use sport in Eldoret as a means to change perceptions between tribes, build peace, promote reconciliation and give young people a hope for the future. The program was called LEAP Sport and is being run by a local organisation called A-STEP.


A terrible day in my life

At the start of the post election violence, Peter lost his uncle during an attack on their compound. He became depressed started using drugs. He talks about how he was able to begin to address his anger and resentment for other ethnic groups on the football pitch, through the LEAP SPORT program.


Thinking Change

During the post-election violence in Kenya in 2007-8, David was shot by an arrow into his chest. He tells his story about how he recovered, but then developed deep resentment for another tribe. Through the LEAP SPORT programme, he was able to learn to forgive, but also to become a mediator to help resolve conflicts around him. David is now a group leader in A-STEP, he has a new life and an important role in his community.
